For fifteen years George worked on an obsessive project to photograph all of the world’s hyper-arid regions. It started with learning to fly a motorized paraglider over the Sahara in the late 90s and eventually took him to 27 countries plus Antarctica. What he found was a dazzling array of co-evolved landscapes, like a disparate family, with each desert having unique variations of arid features like sand dunes, salt lakes, and wind erosion. He also discovered the highly developed strategies that allow man, vegetation, and wildlife to endure on the outer limits of survival. This portfolio is a small selection of this work that appeared in George’s book, Desert Air.
